La Crescenta Photographer Captures Urban Life, Landscape

Urban photographer and La Crescenta resident Alenoush 'Ellen' Moradian shows her photographs from travels around the U.S. and abroad.

A La Crescenta resident's solo photography exhibition went on display at the Glendale Hilton this month to benefit the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry.

Ellen “Alenoush” Moradian captures life and landscapes in her photographs taken during her domestic and international travels.  

“I have always enjoyed traveling and experiencing life and capturing the moments through my camera lens. It’s just an extraordinary perspective and experience," Moradian said in a prepared statement.  

The photographer spent her teenage years in London and found her interest in photography with help from mentor and brother in law.

“Although my mentor is no longer with us; his guidance has inspired me to continue and capture the beauty of everyday life,” she said.

This exhibition was dedicated to him and his colorful life, she explained.

During her short remarks, she thanked everyone and specially her family and close friends for their unconditional support.

Ellen began her photography venture more seriously in 2009 and soon it was no longer just a hobby but a serious part of her everyday life.

Her philosophy regarding photography is “Simplicity”. “I attempt to capture the emotions and beauty from around us which we may not always notice due of our demanding and hectic life styles”. Her goal is to show “the life of an ordinary person in an extraordinary fashion”.
